The horse racing tradition is deeply rooted in Arabian culture. The ancient sport has thrived in the modern world, and it celebrates not only the skills of the trainers, and the bond between man and this graceful animal, but also the rich heritage of the Middle East.
Because of his strong passion for the sport and for horses, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, founded the Godolphin horse racing team. The stable has spread into four continents and has met international success, positioning it as one of the most important names in the world of racing today. Adding feathers to their already full cap, the blue team recently secured wins at the prestigious Royal Ascot in England this month.
Aspiring jockeys and fans can wear the Godolphin royal legacy too. Sun & Sand Sports is the exclusive distributor of official Godolphin horse racing merchandise, and brand new stocks are now available to give you a flying start ahead of the busy racing calendar.
Nothing says equestrian better than a crisp, collared polo. Be one of the boys in blue with the Godolphin polo tee powered by Under Armour performance wear technology. With moisture-transporting ability, poly-cotton fabric blend and anti-odour control, you can stay focused and fresh for longer, whether under the racecourse sun or out and about.
The jackets worn by jockeys are often colourful or patterned according to regulations. This quarter-zip Godolphin sweater is a muted grey and bears the blue Godolphin branding on the chest. Made of organic Merino wool it is soft and lightweight, and dries sweat fast.
If it’s the right bag, then you only need to carry one; and a multi-purpose backpack is a great do-it-all companion to the paddocks or the gym. This bag is water repellent, abrasion resistant and spacious to accommodate clothing, essentials and a laptop. It’s fitted with compartments, water bottle pockets and adjustable shoulder straps for padded comfort.
